Sonia works with CSANR research teams to share their results with our clientele: producers, decision-makers, legislators, regulatory and government agencies, NGOs and agricultural professionals. Her focus is well aligned with her passion for working at the interface of science and decision-making so that research addresses key questions, and our results inform natural resource management decisions at all levels. Sonia joined CSANR in November 2014 after working in conservation science in arid lands and fire-prone forests in her native Argentina, Colorado and, for 10 years now, in eastern Washington. Sonia earned her B.S. from the School of Agronomy at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and a Ph.D. in Ecology from Colorado State University. A lover of big open skies, she is committed to working with researchers and decision-makers to improve the use of science as a way of achieving sustainable use of natural resources.
